Cyprus Deal Pushes EU Closer To Revolution

Posted by Kevin Felts On March 25, 2013 0 Comments

Nation overspends, needs a bailout, part of the bailout is that the government seizes a percentage of savings accounts over 100,000 euro.

Government of Cyprus has turned into nothing more then common criminals. If Cyrpus can do this, what is stopping Spain, Ireland or even the united States from seizing bank accounts?




Our Shared Financial Future

There is an old saying, “no man is an island.” What affects my neighbor also affects me. If we take a look around the United States and Europe, we see one thing in common, the banks driving the nations into bankruptcy.

Whether its the United States, Cyprus, Spain,,, banks have made so many bad loans they have to be bailed out, and at the expense of the tax payer.

In the long run this spells out two things – the banks end up with property is made bad loans on and later repossessed, and then the tax payer is in debt to the banks for their bad loans.

Cyprus – We should all be concerned about bank bailouts, and we should especially be concerned about what is happening in Cyprus. Instead of taxing the organizations who can afford it, the government is going to take 10% from all savings accounts across the nation.

Saving to buy a home? Saving to put your kids through college? Well, 10% of your money just disappeared.




Random Thoughts February 27 2013

We have a lot to talk about. Rather then break these topics down into individual post, lets jut make another random thoughts post.

Colorado has gone off the deep end with gun control. This time they want to make make sellers of semiautomatic rifles responsible for the actions of the end users. It’s laughable what the gun hating liberals are trying to push through. Making gun sellers responsible, is like making Ford, Toyota or GM responsible for drunk drivers.Kevin Felts, blogger and survivalist

Feinstein’s ‘assault weapon’ ban goes to committee. When is the government going to address the real cause of gun violence? Our nation is being overran with debt, banks are getting a steady handout of $85 billion a month from the federal reserve, Iran is working its way to becoming a nuclear power,,, and Dianne Feinstein is worried about gun control? Holy crap, really?

A buddy of mine passed away, his memorial service is going to be March 2.

AR-15 prices are slowing coming down. Instead of a colt 6920 costing $3,000, prices are down to around $2,000. Other brand name ARs are floating around double their price before Sandy Hook.




Inside Job Movie Review

Posted by Kevin Felts On November 27, 2012 0 Comments

Want to know why our ancestor hated banks, just watch the movie “Inside Job.”

The documentary was well done, except where Glenn Hubbard got pissed off. If he would have talked to me like he did the interviewer, I would have bitch slapped him.

Inside Job starts off with Iceland, a nation that was financially sound. that is until regulations on the banks are reduced and government oversight is laxed.

The Inside job talks to various people about what helped create the crash of 2008.

Long story short, the working class people are screwed and the banks are going to keep getting richer.

There is a saying I saw awhile back that stuck in my head – “privatized profits and socialisd losses.” Meaning, when times are good, the banks keep their profits. When times are bad, the tax payers have to foot the bill.

When the federal reserve is there to hand the banks whatever money they want, who worries about losing money?




Our Love Affair With Banks

Posted by Kevin Felts On November 20, 2012 0 Comments

Have you ever considered how in love with banks Americans are? What is one of the first things we instruct young adults to do? That is advice is usually open an account with a bank.

There is an interesting article on Time.com about people who do not have bank accounts.

My wife and I have a savings account, and that is about it. We do not have any credit cards, nor do we have a checking account?

Why don’t we have those items? Because we are not in love with debt or the banks.

Need a loan? Go to a bank.

Instead of going to a bank for a loan, why not just save the money and buy the item interest free?

Need a way to pay bills, get a checking account.




What happened to the United States

Posted by Kevin Felts On July 25, 2012 0 Comments

What happened to the United States? Instead of being the land of the free, with liberty and justice for all, we are the land of cash cows with liberty and freedom for the rich. If you dare speak an opposing opinion, you are branded and outcast. If you speak out against the U.S. government, and travel to another country, the president sends a drone to kill you and whoever is with you.

Banks and wall street immune the law

One thing that really irritates me is hoe big banks and wall street can run over the people, and nothing is ever done.

Leading up to the 2008 housing crash, banks made loans to people who were not qualified to receive loans. The loans were then sold to investors. Wouldn’t that be considered fraud if anyone besides a bank did it?

Bank gets in trouble, the government rushes to shore it up.

People get in trouble, that is just too bad.

Chick-fil-A and the right to speak out

This Chick-fil-A issue and gay rights is getting really out of hand. If someone says they support gay rights, then someone else should have the right to say they do not support gay rights.

If some faggot wants to get his poo packed every night, I could not care less. I am kinda neutral on the issue. As long as the sex is between consenting adults, I do not care what happens in a bedroom. Just because I do not care does not mean I have to support the idea either.

Boycotting a company because they do not support gay rights is like the pot calling the kettle black. There are going to be issues all through life we agree with, neutral on, or disagree with. So what if a company does not support gays rights? So what? It is their right to voice their opinion.
